Furniture Fusion Introduce Drum


Furniture Fusion has launched its brand new Drum Collection, made in Italy the Drum range of furniture is all made form recycled industrial oil drums.


the pieces are bright and colourful, with the original branding of the oil drums coming through into the barrels new life, giving the pieces lots of character. this is defantly a piece for motoring fans with the drums being recycled from italian oil companies such as APig and Nils, recognisable faces on the motor racing track.


The rawness and authenticity of product is seen and showed off, with the harsh industrial look being key to products success.  you can see the dents and ripples form the barrels history again reinforcing this sense of character. ‘The furniture looks lived in, it tells a story’ says Furniture Fusion MD Sam Samuels.


Drum Furniture is hand-made to order and can made in any size or in any colours clients choose (depending on oil drums available).


Furniture Fusion first saw the collection at Milan Furniture Fair last year and decided to bring it to the UK. Sam Samuels comments ‘I love the fact that it is unusual and it’s eco-friendly, being made from waste material. it’s got a real industrial charm’.


The Drum collection of chairs and stools also includes tables, lights and sideboards which is all design and made in Tuscany by Vibrazioni Art Design  a design studio that noticed the amount of discarded oil drums in Italy and decided to tackle the problem head on.

‘The Drum collection offers great idiosyncratic design from designers who are passionate about about being creative using sustainable materials. And what people really like is that not only is the furniture made from recycled metal but it’s recyclable too, which is really important in the fight to reduce the amount of products that end up in landfill.’
